Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Life along the Mississippi in 1817 is the colorful setting for this cozy unpretentious tale. Fresh out of convent school, wealthy, imaginative Jemma O'Hurley flees a forced marriage, only to find her adventurous heart has landed her in a maze of dark, dangerous streets in New Orleans. One of her (many) prayers are answered by the big, burly buckskin-clad Kentuckian Hunter Boone (a distant cousin of Daniel). The narrative is straightforward-a series of rescues, some involving Jemma, some not-sustained by Landis's well-deserved reputation for eloquence. ( "A dream can be a very cold and lonely thing, not unlike the snow that reflected blue-white beneath the sun.") Here, Landis offers jeopardy, modest bits of humor and lots of sweetness.

School Library Journal
YADefying her formal, austere father, Jemma follows her grandfather's advice to have an adventure just once in her life. She escapes into the Louisiana woods of 1816. Her guide is Hunter, a moral but human man who sees through Jemma's lies, but falls in love with her anyway. Teens will appreciate the breezy style, quest for adventure, and simple plot. Humorous scenes occur frequently as fashionable, society debutante Jemma learns to cope on the frontier. More importantly, she finds the love of friends and the value of true family life.

    This reminds me of those books out there, that are so depressing, but still manage to be lovely. Thanks, Starry. This is fantastic.

    Let Me Tell You [...] Chapter Five

    Oops! Thank you so much for pointing out my mistake, Bird! I never would havecaught that. &star Okay, please use the word 'hospital gowm' instead of 'pants'. For instance, the pulled the hospital gown up, and after the injection, pulled it back down. Okay.)) <p>I stared blankly at the patient lockers on the other side of the room, behind the staff desk. I hugged myself tightly, feeling violated. One of the male techs, Reo, was kneeling beside me. He was saying something to me, but l didn't hear it. I felt blood rushing to my head. A sick, miserable wave crossed over me. Reo as looking at me expectantly before seeing my face. He immediately got up and shouted something. A few seconds later, a nurse shot out of the nurse's station with a wet washcloth in hand. She knelt next to me and pressed the cloth to my face. My ears and my face felt like they were on fire, and l felt sweat building up on my forehead. This is, what, the third time l've almost passed out here? <p>My eardrums settled down and l could begin to hear what the nurse was saying to me, but it sounded distant. I spotted Reo moving magnets on the patient board. He placed a white, square magnet with orange letters reading 'HROF'. <p>I came to in my room, laying down on my back, on top of my sheet and blanket, with a washcloth on my face. I leaned up and instantly regreted it as l started dry-retching. A tech sitting outside my door, partly in the hallway, looked up. "Jess? You okay?" she asked.<brr>Jess. I hadn't heard that name in a while. They didn't use names often here, for confidential reasons. I thought she was talking to someone else before realising that was my name. Jess. I stared at her blankly, helping myself back into a laying down position.<br>She stood up and called for Reo to come over. Seconds later, he appeared outside the doorway. He took over her spot and she entered my room, stopping next to my bed. She took the washcloth off my face and pressed the back of er hand on my forehead. "How are you feeling?" she asked, moving to the sink right outside of my bathroom. She ran cold water over the washcloth an gently wrung it out.<br>"Sick," l mumbled. <br>"You'll feel under the weather for a few more days. You had a bad reaction to the medicine those nurse gave to you yesterday." She cleared her throat. "Those nurses have been let go for unneeded injections on a patient and se<_>xual assault." She didn't ellaborate on the assault part, and l was slightly mortified. Was it me? "The assault was not on you, but it did happen on the unit," she said, as if reading my thoughts. "Get some rest," she sighed. "We need you to get back in the daily routine of things, especially school." She placed the washcloth on my forehead and left the room, leaving Reo to watch me.<br>"What was that letter magnet for? That you put on my name," l asked hoarsely.<br>"lt stands for High Risk of Falling," he replied, sitting down in the chair. "You've shown many side effects of it, mostly your blackouts."<br>"Okay," l said. Okay, l repeated to myself.

    Outstanding!

    I found this book very enjoyable I could hardly put it down while I was reading it! Landis was able to deliver another great romance. I loved the characters and how different they were from eachother, and the fact that they could still fall in love. I also found all of their adventures (river crossings, indians etc.) to be very exciting!
